Man City secured a 3-1 victory over Manchester United in the derby fixture thanks to goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan. Anthony Martial's coolly dispatched second-half penalty had provided a lifeline for Jose Mourinho and his side, but Pep Guardiola saw his side triumph after a resolute performance from the away side. City totally dictated proceedings early on at the Etihad stadium and took a deserved lead when Silva fired in from close range early on. Despite some wasteful chances in front of goal, the Blues highlighted a gulf in class as they secured a valuable victory to return to the top of the Premier League table. United had responded well in the second half with Romelu Lukaku making an immediate difference. However, Paul Pogba's absence cost the visitors as they fell to defeat.

Manchester City face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday night as Pep Guardiola's side look to strengthen their grip on top spot in group F.

Should City win their third consecutive group game and Hoffenheim beat Lyon, the Blues will be in the hat for the round of 16 for a sixth-consecutive season. Guardiola's side go into the fixture in red-hot form, having put daylight between themselves and the chasing pack in the Premier League with a 6-1 win against Southampton at the weekend. Sergio Aguero was on target with his 150th Premier League goal, while Raheem Sterling scored twice and provided the assist for two more amid news of him 'verbally agreeing' a new deal at the club.
